Probably should have put up a “gone fishin” sign so, sorry about that folks. The elections ground me down to the point that I needed to take a break.
It wasn’t so much the result that got me as the whole political ordeal. My God I hate politics, even as I find it fascinating. I hate how much time politics takes up. I hate what politics does to people. I hate how it warps our perceptions of truth and justice and even art.
So this is necessarily going to be a less political blog for a bit, even as I occasionally link to my political pieces here. Hard to say exactly what form this will take but it will probably involve a bit more about my first love, books.
